hi there, we have got a few stone chips on the bonnet and some down the sides of the car, we just wondered how good touch up paint was? or shall we do a respray instead? we are ordering some new stripes for martha and want the paint work to be better before putting them on Smile Smile

If you're after replacement stripes or graphics give Dan a call/pm he's one of our sponsors and a whole lot cheaper than a main dealer......

www.DS-Graphics.co.uk he's done loads for people on here and I've only heard excellent reports Very Happy

As to chips, depends how big they are? Smile

And talk to Tom another of our sponsors. We bought the touch up paint and got him to do it using the correct machinery.

BMW about £20 for a stick. It worked well. Keep it in a warm place before you use it. I had to go and order and pay for it and it came the next day or so Surprised

I'm working on finding someone to a pro stone chip repair (they really are my pet hate) and will let everyone know if and when I succeed.
